Mothers of Preschoolers

MOPS is a group of moms committed to creating a better community for us and our children.  MOPS exists to encourage and equip mothers of preschoolers by bringing in speakers on a wide range of topics ranging from health and fitness to marriage and parenting.  It’s a great chance to connect with other women in our area.

MOPS meets on campus on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month September through May from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Dues for 2023-2024 (September through May): $110/mom, $150/child.

Monthly Women's Events

This ministry gives women in our church and community an opportunity to connect with each other through different kinds of social events each month. Monthly gatherings include a variety of different kinds of activities:

  • Game nights
  • Going to a restaurant
  • Doing an outdoor activity like kayaking.
  • Hearing from an expert in a field, such as interior design or self-defense.

The goal of this ministry is give a platform for women to get to know each other better whether they are part of our congregation or not.

At each gathering a woman from our church shares her story about what God has done in her life.

The women’s ministry normally meets on campus the last Sunday of each month at 5:00 p.m.  Generally there is no cost to participate, but some events require a registration fee.
